Liverpool must complete Adama Traore transfer move in January

Taking into consideration how Liverpool wingers Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah have contributed to 16 of the 31 Premier League goals Jurgen Klopp’s side have managed to score this season, it’s safe to say the duo have been critical for the team since the start of the campaign.

With this in mind, it’s also safe to assume that they will both be a big miss for the Reds when they take part in the upcoming AFCON tournament in January with their respective countries.

Looking ahead to January, it seems as though the club could have their eye on bringing in a new winger that could help the team continue their season without Mane and Salah for a period of time.

What’s the news?

It has recently been reported by 90min that Wolves are ready to sell Adama Traore in January with talks over a new deal at Molineux continuing to stall.

The report also claims that Liverpool and Barcelona are in the frame to make a swoop for the winger with the Merseyside club’s valuation of Traore being less than £30m, which Wolves don’t want to drop below.

Dream move for Klopp

Since joining Wolves back in the 2018 summer transfer window from Championship club Middlesbrough in a deal worth a reported fee of £18m, Traore has made a total of 143 appearances for the Midlands club across all competitions, scoring ten goals and providing 18 assists in the process.

Despite only managing to score two goals and provide two assists in the Premier League last season, Traore, who is currently valued at £27m according to Transfermarkt, managed to end the campaign as Wolves’ joint-highest rated player with an overall season rating of 7.11/10 alongside Pedro Neto according to WhoScored, showing how capable he is of playing at a high level in the Premier League.

Should Liverpool sign Traore in January?

If Wolves are willing to sell their star winger, then FSG should be doing all they can to bring the Spaniard to Anfield. Klopp once described Traore as “undefendable” and thus, he could be his dream swoop, particularly with Mane and Salah set to spend some time away from the club over the winter.

Liverpool have already felt the benefits of raiding Wolves and they will have to hope Traore can have an instant attacking impact on the team in the same way his former teammate Diogo Jota did by scoring 13 goals in his first season at Liverpool.
